Thank you for writing to us.

Please send the last part of your error log after you tried starting the server.
Also, check if the server is actually running.

This seems to be a duplicate of bug #14049, classified as not a bug.

According to the output provided you are using a very old version: 4.1.12 and not 5.1.45. Please download a new version from http://www.mysql.com/downloads/ or reinstall MySQL through Ubuntu package management .

there is no bug.

From your error log:
100805  1:08:35  InnoDB: Operating system error number 13 in a file operation.
InnoDB: The error means mysqld does not have the access rights to
InnoDB: the directory.
